Why does everybody keep insisting these bullets will be used to kill people? Do you have any idea how many rounds of ammo are fired each year for
target shooting or hunting? And then how many are fired each year to kill a person? Well I do not have the exact numbers for you, but I can
guarantee you the number used on humans each year is not even a drop in the bucket for the total amount of ammo used. I alone probably many up for
the entire “used on human” quota each year. I fire a case of ammo nearly every time I go out shooting. So figure over one thousand rounds each
time and on average 2 times per month. So let’s just round it off to a nice 25,000 rounds of ammo per year, to cover hunting, and other random (non
human) shooting events. I may not make up for all the military action. But I am sure I cover most, if not all of the police and civilian action.
And the military is not buying this ammo, so I am not worried that I need to count their usage.
Now having said this; I do think it is a bit odd, but I have heard of people that eat the ashes, or do other very odd things with them…. So while I
can’t imagine doing it myself, it is not the worst use of peoples ashes have heard of. I think the eating of the ashes has to top the list of weird
things to do with uncle bob’s ashes. But I have seen it mixed in paint, and then repaint the guy’s car. I have seen it dumped in the garden of
the lady who died, and there by default, was eaten by the people who then eat the food grown there. I have seen people just toss it off a cliff or
out of an airplane etc. There is just no telling what someone is going to do with the ashes.
